Survey sample. The target population for the survey research are the genuine students of the university, both government sponsored and self-sponsored. A total of 500 students are to be surveyed since the number correlates well with the available time for the study, budget and the necessary precision.

The sample chosen is partially unbiased since the targets are directly affected by services provided by the university in one way or another. Daytime interviews are appropriate since they capture both resident and non-resident students attending lectures.

Survey quotas. Sample size for a sub-group (quota) is established to ensure that the sample reflects two relevant groups within the student population:-

  • Resident students
  • Non-resident students

This enables us to analyze each response as a distinct group since both groups receive different services from the university administration. The questionnaires or interview pattern will therefore be a bit different for these two groups.

Selected optimal survey method. An optimal survey method is the one that is significant for responding to research questions appropriately and is able to handle constraints imposed by time, finance and human resources. This can be achieved by analyzing the objectives of the research and comparing them with the merits and demerits of the available survey methods. In this case we settle on personal interviews as our survey method since it has the capability of giving us an in-depth and detailed response from the students because the interaction involves the interviewer and the students directly.

Another reason why we settle on personal interviews is that the respondents (students) are located in a centralized place hence minimize transport cost as we reap on the benefits of one-on-one interaction.
